    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    this past Monday, I went to pick up my new eyeglasses. I got to the store okay. When I started to back up my vehicle, I noticed my brakes were not working the way the should, I had to pump them to get them to work properly.

    Long story short, by the time I got home the pedal was going all the way to the floor. Had the car towed yesterday to the repair guy, thanks AAA.

    Got the call today that the brake lines were shot . Parts will cost about $125.... 8.5 hours of labor.. $$. Total about $845

    Good Lord!! That much to replace brake lines?! I'm in the wrong line of work! But I guess that's about what a repair shop costs these days.

    they got the brake lines done, took it for a teat drive...... and the master cylinder goes out.

    if it wasn't for bad luck, I would have no luck at all

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Today is my first day of my sophomore year! My first class seems okay. I am a little scared for the week we have to cook lobster and for our iron chef final. My second class, seems terrible at the moment. The professor is Russian so it hard to understand her and she does not talk loud... which is kind of bad for a 200 person lecture.

    Because weekday tv is just as bad as weekend tv. I mowed yesterday and have been thinking about going out and watching it grow. Next weekend I have to move a couple of sprinkler heads so I'm looking forward to that. If it would simply rain here I wouldn't worry about it. But we haven't seen much rain for a while.

    The lobster should go smoothly. As for the professor I hope someone says something that she has to speak slow & loud.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Hello all, very busy here. Work has been crazy since I returned from vacation. But, we are doing better. I am pretty much packed for my trip to Disney Friday with DD. Have a few things to decide on what to take but that will finish tomorrow. I have never gone on vacation 4 weeks between trips before this is exciting.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Howdy!

    Need to tell you all about son heading off to college. I didn't cry too much - a little on the way up there but since I was driving I knew it wasn't a good idea. He didn't really pack up all his stuff and I haven't had time to get in there and repack the little bit he did put in boxes. Next oldest son has moved in and is enjoying his own room.

    Son was saying he would come home for Labor Day but I didn't really think he would. We got there at 9 to move him in- I like how they do it. The Volleyball and Soccer teams will go to your car, get everything and take it to the room. Only do it for the freshmen but its cool and nice. So took 5 minutes to unpack the car. Had some other things to do on campus with the daughter so we didn't unpack stuff until after lunch. About 1 p.m. he had stopped saying he would come home- he didn't notice that he had stopped. But he remembered people from camp and two people he either knew from a long time ago and one that he went to school with were there. He also found out that one of these friends had a room mate with XBox and they were planning a Black Ops party for the weekend. He didn't really want us to unpack him but sister told him to let us because he wouldn't have any time to do it. He and the hubby ended up taking a nap while I went to Wal-mart and unpacked his clothes. We stayed until daughter got off work. Son was going to orientation stuff and she wanted to be fed real food (we had lunch in the cafeteria). So we said goodbye to him- lots of hugs but no tears.

    Once we actually got on the road I did end up crying a lot because the shuffle on the phone's music was making me cry. "Story of My Life" (which he sang at his final choir concert), "Got no reason now for going home" "Broken Wing" , "You'll be in my heart" and then finally "I will survive". I had to text him that- it was too funny! Anyway- he had a great time meeting new people and all of the orientation stuff. They had Student Senate voting and he decided to run for freshman representative.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    He dressed up in his suit jacket. Looked nice apparently. Got up and talked about how we don't all know each other but we will and what a great experience this will be for us. He hadn't been feeling well since before we dropped him off- allergies really so during his speech he coughs and mentions being sick and a little hoarse- and that's when he pulled out his unicorn mask and says Vote for me. Walks off stage. He won. At that point, I knew he would be okay.

    During this time he also tried out for chorus. He was already in band but wanted to try out for chorus. Actually he said he wasn't talented enough (eye roll here- the boy has some pipes and great music theory knowledge). He made the chorus and one of the specialized choruses- one that does classical music- like singing in Latin. Luckily that one has scholarship money with it! AWESOME!!!!!!

    Classes going good- making friends- Stayed at college for Labor Day and was playing basketball with friends in the rec. I get a call from my daughter asking if I had heard from him----ummmmm no, Why? Well he fell and hurt himself bad enough they thought it might be broken. So off to the ER they were going- well he wanted to drive himself but she is smarter than that and said NO. Got him to the ER- he got bored and wanted to leave. She asked if he could even put his weight on it- of course not so she said WE AREN'T LEAVING- go big sis! Short story- HA NO WAY- not broken. He is on crutches and hates being so helpless. He had trouble walking with his trombone and the crutches- he was 20 minutes late for band. Bet he figures something else out!

    So I can say it has been a good experience for him. His sister is loving having him up there- she took him out to eat and all. We are adjusting well here at home!

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    Seems like he is doing well except for the injury. I saw that on your Facebook and was worried about him.



    My post about college now
    Good golly I did not realize how stressful this semester would be. Like for real my roommate and I have mental break downs all ready and it is only week two. I dropped a class last week and picked up another class so in the end I am taking more credits now then I was last week. Thats not really adding to the stress. Its just I feel like everything is due like right now, when it is really not due for a couple weeks. I just need to relax and realize that everything is going to work out fine.

    On a side note, cute boy I ate with on the cruise... well he is now cute sweet boyfriend.
